We made it to the end and what a lovely last half term we have had as a Year One class. Our theme this half term was The Potting Shed and we really enjoyed learning all about gardens and the plants and animals we would find inside them.
Our special book this half term was ‘The Flower’. In Literacy, we dived deep into the pictures of this book to create some lovely descriptive sentences.
We worked really hard to make a minibeast hotel in DT. We evaluated some that we could find in the shops first to create our design criteria and then we got to work cutting, joining and making it look really pleasing!
In Numeracy, we started looking at money! We learned to recognise and order different English coins and notes. We also learned to recognise and order numbers up to 100! Ask us to show you how!
In Art, we looked at Henri Matisse and created our own garden themed collages based off his work.
We had a lovely transition day meeting our new class teachers. We saw all of the wonderful things in our new classrooms and had lots of fun exploring the new areas in our classroom. Have a look at us in action! We then wrote letters to our new class teachers in Literacy to tell them what we were looking forward to and to ask them something that we wanted to know about them.
We also had a fantastic sports morning, even if it was really warm! We were really pleased to be able to welcome our parents back into the classroom for some squash and to see all of the hard work we have been doing this year. They were so proud of us!
This year we also performed our class musical 'Hats Off!' to our grown ups. We were really brave to get on the stage to speak and to sing!
